Subscribe to RSS - Religious Refusals and RFRA

The First Amendment guarantees the free exercise of religion. While the exact boundaries of this right can be difficult to draw, at a minimum it means Americans have the right to join the religious groups of their choice and worship unmolested by the government. Free exercise, however, is not a cover for otherwise illegal activities. Religious beliefs should not be used to prevent public accommodation for government and/or government funded services, and do not constitute a right to disobey laws protecting others from discrimination and abuse.
